something has gone horribly wrong 8-p

A group of Australians concerned about the human rights abuses of asylum seekers in Australia's infamous immigration detention centres travels around the country for 2 months and 12'000 kilometres to visit the people in the camps, to educate the communities on its route, and to expose some of the human rights violations.
'Waking up the Nation' takes you on this inspiring journey, as the strange mix of housewives, teenangers, hippies and students onboard of the colourfull 'Freedom Bus' have their run-ins with overzealous cops, racist small town locals, and burly detention centre guards. Most importantly this road-movie-style documentary introduces you to many of the countless men, women and children inprisoned in these camps under the harsh immigration policies of the Australian government. Additional video footage smuggled out of some of these prisons show chilling and heartbreaking pictures, and prove that something is going on in the remoteness of the Australian deserts of which many Australians are rightly ashamed of.



مجموعة من مناصري حقوق الإنسان مهتمة بالتجاوزات التي تقع في السجون الأسترالية للمهاجرين وطالبي اللجوء السياسي. مهمة "حافلة الحرية" هي زيارة اللاجئين في المخيمات، وفضح الإساءات بحقهم. "إيقاظ الأمة" يأخذنا في رحلة نتعرّف من خلالها على خليط عجيب من اللاجئين من مختلف دول الشرق الأوسط وجنوب آسيا: ربات بيوت، مراهقين، عاطلين، وطلبة. يحكون قصص المشاجرات اللانهائية مع الشرطة، وأهالي المدن الصغيرة العنصريين، وحرّاس مراكز الاحتجاز. تمّ تهريب بعض اللقطات من داخل هذه المخيمات، وتظهر صوراً مأساوية، وتثبت أن هناك تجاوزات كثيرة تقع في صحراء أستراليا يتوجّب على الناس معرفتها.
إيقاظ الأمة




"Waking Up The Nation" dokumentiert in Form eines Roadmovies über eine Gruppe von AustralierInnen, die ums ganze Land fahren, um AsylbewerberInnen in den australischen Flüchtlingscamps zu besuchen und das Land auf die Menschenrechtssituation aufmerksam zu machen.
In dem Film kommen die zu Wort, die als Protest ihre Lippen zunageln, weil ihre Stimmen unterdrückt werden.Zusätzliches Bildmaterial bezeugt auf betrübliche Art und Weise, dass in der Ferne der australischen Wüsten etwas vor sich geht, weswegen sich viele AustralierInnen schämen.
